Choosing your Seat: Fit before you Sit with Carson Demers
Crafters, your chair is one of your most important tools because it impacts the posture of your entire body. Its selection should be done mindfully and not left to chance or based on what’s available. In this class you’ll learn neutral seated postures, why they’re important and whether they’re possible for your craft. More importantly you’ll learn what to do if they aren’t! The class will instruct you in what to look for in a chair for doing everything from fiber and fabric work to using your computer. You’ll learn how your chair impacts the mechanics of your spine and upper body. Don’t risk back pain or other ergonomic discomfort that can result from using the wrong chair.
